Very good at:
+ Writing great copy (fiction and non-fiction for any medium).
+ Turning average copy into great copy (I am a gun editor).
+ Devoting myself (heart and soul) to worthy causes for minimal financial gain (not to be encouraged).

About me & my work:

I've written or co-written five books and edited two. The first was 'The Future of God' (Millennium, 1996). The most recent was 'Bewitched and Bedevilled: Women Write the Gillard Years' (Hardie Grant, 2013). I also spent a couple of years immersed in (national treasure) Jenny Kee's life whilst ghostwriting her autobiography.

I've worked as a journalist and editor in book and magazine publishing, online and in radio. I've been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, the Guardian, the Australian, Rolling Stone, the late, great HQ and Juice, and I've worked (as an editor and project manager) at the ABC. I've edited more than a dozen magazines (including Simply Living way back in the 1990s) and I've written about science for young people on 3P Learning’s cutting edge 'Into Science' website. I've also done a little PR for peace, environment and social justice groups. (See the entry about 'worthy causes' below.)

I like to write about people, pop culture, religion, travel, science, social justice and the environment.
